Well i must say what an excellent start to 2008 at Bury Wargamers. It seems like the long rest over Christmas did everyone the world of good with the club nearly bursting at the seams with gaming...with 35 people "paying to play" over the evening and about 45 people in all attending...a new club record!!!!
The junior Gaming table under the watchfull eye of Brother Captain Jon was a hive of industrie as Alien Allience forces classed with the Heros of the Imperium on a recon mission, with lots of new "shinny" stuff on the table ........Seems like Santa was good to a few people? Though it was a little cramped with a few tables gone missing we managed to have a lot of fun.
Flames of War...well the name sais it all..... When i went over to have a look at how things were going there were a lot of tanks on fire with British Airsupport just being brought in by Paul....looking at all of the Anti Tank weapons that the German side was using i dont think they lasted very long.... i think just long enough to shout "Tally Ho Chaps"... Me thinks i would like to have a better look at this as it seems to be getting very popular....and alot of fun.
Warmachine Call to Arms.......We had 16 people partisipate in this..which is a record for Bury Wargamers..and as one visitor quoted " I have never seen so many people playing warmachine under one roof".....which i though was a great compliment for the club and everyone involved........We will post a battle report later on to cover what went on.
Allo Allo Allo!........We had our first visit from Pc 124 Kenneth Illsley...or Ken to his freinds. As you might know we have had a couple of visits later on in the evening from a few "Well Oiled Inderviduals " causing a bit of trouble so Ken dropped by to give us some advice and have a coffee and a chat. He was very impressed with everything we have done and will make a point of dropping in to see us when he is on his rounds.
And Finally...a presonal record was made last night...Rosie actually manged to finishing painting a model...now that dosent sound anything great right!!..WRONG.. Rosie is at Uni in London at the moment so dosent have a lot of time for her hobbie. So when she can she makes the drive up from there to her home the other side of Ipswich ,and then Ant and her drives over to us for the evening to see us...now that commitment..............A big Hoorraahhh for Rosie.
So thanks everyone for another great night and onward , upwards and forward in to 2008.
Cheers for now.
